Little Deers is open 9am - 3pm Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during term time.

Children are supported by Julie and Fran, highly qualified Early Years practitioners with more than 30 years' experience between them. A combination of child-led free play and structured activities encourage children to develop at their own pace. Small group sizes facilitate social and emotional development, as well as allowing children to form strong bonds with peers and adults to prepare them for the progression to school. 

Children have the option to bring packed lunches or a selection of delicious hot lunches can be ordered through CaterCater.

Children are not required to wear a uniform, however a red polo shirt, sweatshirt and draw-string bag are all available to purchase from our school supplier, Brigade (
